On Saturday, April 10th, VP Records will host the first-ever friendly Sound Clash between St. George’s College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc., and the Jamaica College Old Boys Association of Florida, Inc.
The True Blue Sound Clash of 2021 is replacing the traditional True Blue weekend soccer event held every year. Organizers of the event said that the COVID-19 pandemic has forced them to present a match between the two schools in a different way. This year marks the 17th year for the South Florida event though being held in a different format.
Past True Blue 2-day weekends attracted soccer enthusiasts from Canada, the Caribbean, Central American, and South America. The yearly fundraising event provides the schools with the funding necessary to present scholarships to Jamaica College and St. George’s College students.
The True Blue Sound Clash will be streamed live on VP Records’ Youtube page starting at 7 PM. The MC for the clash will be popular radio personality Steven “Sir Rockwell” Warner.
The event is held in honor of Dennis Ziadie, who coached players at both schools to Manning Cup victories. Nearly 2,000 soccer enthusiasts and supporters typically participate in the annual event.
Richard A. Lue, the director of business development at VP Music Group said, “We are pleased to host this Clash on our platform and look forward to the musical competition between two great schools. I can’t wait to be supporting my school Cornwall College in the future.”
